Our raw honey sets in the jar
See how our raw honey sets in the jar - you can see the sugar crystals forming. This is 100% natural and it's proof that our honey is raw.
Our bodies & brains need good sugar to live. Simple sugars from honey (& fruit) give your body good energy AND valuable nutrients.
Our body breaks food down into glucose in order to use it for energy to lead our busy lives. The more complex a food is, the more work it takes to break it down. Honey is made mostly of sugar, but it’s only about 30% glucose and less than 40% fructose (the sugar typically found in fruits). And there are also about 20 other sugars in the mix, many of which are much more complex, and dextrin, a type of starchy fiber. This means that your body expends more energy to break it all down to glucose. So you get the energy without the sugar rush and you end up with fewer calories.
